Sunday Synopsis


Hardcore Twenty-Four (Stephanie Plum #24)Hardcore Twenty-Four by Janet Evanovich
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Maybe because I have read so many Stephanie Plum novels, they fail to impress me greatly, but more likely, it was because this one had to do with zombies, and I don't like zombie anything (book, show, movie).

This book has bounty hunter Stephanie Plum continuing to chase FTA's (failure to appear) for her cousin Vinny's bail bonds business. One of her FTA's goes quietly, but only when Stephanie agrees to take care of his giant pet snake. Did I mention I don't like snakes, either? She's also chasing a crook who wants to shoot a movie about zombies, and apparently, there is a new drug on the streets that makes the user into a zombie of sorts. And did I mention there are headless bodies showing up?

Believe it or not, there is actually some humor in the book, in large part (pun intended) from Stephanie's sidekick Lulu, a plus-size black woman in petite-size clothes who used to be a prostitute. Morelli, Stephanie's police officer on-and-off boyfriend, and Ranger, her self-appointed guard, also show up in the book.

This is an easy read, and it would be fun if not for the subject matter, so I can only say that the book was "okay."
